August is National Immunization Awareness Month and time to check to see if you and your family are up to date on your immunizations.
It is important to remember that immunizations are not just for kids. There are many immunizations available to help protect older children and adults of all ages from serious ailments. In addition, it is a good time to remember that flu shot season is coming soon and to talk to your doctor about if the flu shot is right for you.
The Centers for Disease Control provides the website below to help teenagers and adults check to see if they are up to date on all their immunizations. You can take a short quiz to see where you stand and what is recommended for your age and gender. http://www2.cdc.gov/nip/adultImmSched/
As always, speak with your doctor and determine what is best for you and your family. The websites from the CDC list recommendations, but they may not be right in every case so please speak with your doctors first.
